Certified Garden Nursery and Wildlife Habitat
We are a small veteran run garden nursery and homestead located in Clayton NC, just outside of Raleigh. Our beautiful homestead is made up of just under 3.5 acres of land which we are in the process of turning into our food forest. We aspire to live in harmony with nature. We strive to be good stewards of the land and be as sustainable as possible. We are a state certified garden nursery and a certified wildlife habitat through National Wildlife Foundation. We also offer services such as garden and permaculture design assistance. Check out our service tab for more details!
Kindred Acres Homestead is our sanctuary. It's our little slice of heaven. We have planted well over 200 edible trees and bushes, as well as hundreds of herbs, flowers, natives, and edibles to date and continue to plant as we fill in our food forest. We use permaculture and regenerative gardening practices. We do not use herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers. Instead we biology as well as permaculture and regenerative methods like chop and drop, woodchips layers, and biologically complete compost to feed our plants, and we use a no-till gardening method. We focus on building soil and the ecosystem below our feet. Because this system works so well, it is very easy to maintain and it requires very little water. We use an extremely small amount of water for our gardens which is, in itself, a sustainable practice. We have medicinal plants for our apothecary, tea gardens for dried tea herbs, and annual edible gardens for our sustenance. We work with the land, regenerating the erosion areas and cleaning up the forest of sick or standing dead trees and invasive vines. We recently installed a wildflower field for pollinators and a cottage garden that surrounds our nut orchard. We do all of this without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or harsh chemicals. We built this space to not only be a sanctuary for us but for the nature creatures as well. Our work here at Kindred Acres is a project that will continue for a time to come.
We have pet chickens who we adore dearly. They provide us eggs, feathers for projects, and wonderful compost. Penny, our Red Ear Slider turtle loves to follow us around the garden as well, munching on greens as we go. Our wild bird friends, pollinator friends, frogs, and other nature creatures have been abundant since we have added to the land.....such a treat! We have had visits from fox, deer, coyote, and all sorts of wildlife. We have even see signs of beavers.
We are Spiritual and believe we are all connected to each other and to the land. We believe in holistic healing through nature, disease prevention through food, and honoring our bodies and land. The land and the plants here at Kindred Acres are sacred to us. We thank them often for their presence and abundance.
Every day we are learning and growing personally and spiritually, and as a homestead community which is a journey in itself and one best taken with friends by your side. Grow with us, share in our journey, and watch the transformation as it happens!!
